Sidi Clever Air Boots
Great for hot Arizona riding
These boot are awesome. The airflow is amazing and works great for riding in the desert as the temps start rising.

Really good boot, performs as advertised.
First time I've felt air on my feet, and I ride a boxer twin in Hawaii. These boots have really made a difference in my comfort when it is hot. A bit snug at first, but I suspect they will loosen up with use. If you are looking for water resistance, then this is not your boot.

Boots are a little stiff, good air flow and style.
Revzilla did an excellent job of exchanging the first pair I bought cause they were too small the second pair fit just right. They have good air flow which on the horizontally opposed BMW twins that I ride is a major relief. I like the style and the protection they offer.

Great Hot Weather Touring/Commuting Boot
I have worn these boots on dry days since the beginning of this season (April 2012) . On cooler days you can really feel the airflow on your foot so it is not a good cold weather boot. It was designed for hot days and it works great when paired with some good vented socks. Even in 38 C temps my feet are comfortable as long as I keep moving :-) I have been caught in a rain shower a few times and my feet stayed dry. They are very comfortable for all day riding. You can't go wrong with SIDI!! The only caution is that if you have wide feet I would pass on these boots.

Product great, customer service outstanding
I really like these boots. Quality and overall fit is very good. Seems to run true to size. Decent air flow which is what I was looking for as I only intend to use these for day rides during summer. I first ordered the TCX and they just did not crease where they needed to for my foot. The sales rep, when I called for an RA, recomended alterantives. We decided on the Sidi. Then he actually went and tried on the TCX and the Sidi and called me back! He reconginzed my issue with the TCX and said he thought I'd be pleased with the Sidi by comparison. I'm not used to that type of service from the web or mail order. Outstanding!

Great warm weather boot for all riding styles
No one wants to put on a heavy pair of riding boots in the middle of summer with the temprature aproaching 100. The Sidi Clever Air Boot is great for summer heat. Maximum ventelation with excelent protection. Easy to get on great fit for me (a little on the narrow side) and a whole lot smarter than sneakers or even worse flip-flops.

Short ride tells they are going to be great
I've only had these out once on a 63 degree day and definitely felt the air passing through them. They're comfortable to walk around in and gave me no trouble at all on the bike.

Good ventilation, decent protection.
Originally ordered size 44 and was too big, usually use size 9.5 US on trainers, went down to 43 and they fit nice with enough room for thick socks, the cut is narrow and the tip keeps the toes very compact, if you have wide chunky feet these are not the right choice.
The ventilation is enough to keep your foot from boiling in hot humid weather, but you really don’t feel it below 60 to 80 KPH, and is not as evident as a mesh glove, but it works, the mesh is made of very thick stiff material.
The protection on heel and toes feels very good, however the ankle and shin plates feel very soft, so I would consider it not enough for offroad or racing, definitely a touring/city boot.
You can walk on them, but they are not comfortable, the toe cap pushes on the top of my feet as I bend it, will keep my sandals in the backpack. Very comfy on the bike and despite of the mesh are easy to clean. The sole feels hard and durable.
